    I loved this place! Everything you would want in a hostel. Easy going vibes, effortless to meet fellow travellers. Recently installed super fast satellite internet from the world's favorite eccentric billionaire. And a wonderful mix of people, I wish I had booked for more nights. Highly recommend.

    This place was great vibe - very welcoming and social. They cook you breakfast in the morning. The location is very short walk to the beautiful Playa Carrizalillo beach.

    Overall a very nice play to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only “thing” : it’s far away “from the bars, the pool could be more clean, otherwise nothing bad to say. The breakfast was ok, easy to talk with people

    The staff are great. Mari is fabulous, she helps with everything. Great breakfast is included, fruits and pancakes. Great vibe, great location. Wifi was fine Will definitely recommend. The only issue: The rooms could be cleaned more often. I saw a cockroach in the room. Under the beds and mattresses need cleaning.

    Great hostel. Really good social atmosphere and activities organised every night. Loved the hammocks on the terrace and the pancakes for breakfast everyday especially. Close to the best swimming beach and a short taxi/colectivo to La Punta/Zicatela. Only complaint is that it’s let down in a big way by a lack of cleanliness. I rarely saw the rooms/bathrooms getting a proper clean.

    We paid for a private room but had a door which didn't close nor could we lock it. Was not fixed even though we asked several times. Staff too busy hanging out. No one really cares. Everything is dirty Atmosphere is super dependant on whoever works that day. Some are cool but others really don't give you a welcome feeling. Moreover they really stick to each other, have events among themselves etc. There goes the family feeling a hostel like this could have. The whole place just seems a bit off.
